If you can refrain from buying from Meritage in the Garlic Creek area, DO it! Save yourself the stress and headaches in dealing with this horrible builder. Our entire process started off bad from the day we signed our contract. Not to mention Ryan is the worst person to deal with, to include a dishonest construction Manager Jesse. Our home has been delayed in closing twice now, but are never notified in advance. We've been told the week before closing both times that our home would be delayed. Needless to say, we are cancelling our contract with them. They can be responsible for the home and the cost of keeping it until someone else dares to buy.
